Branson Murder Mystery Dinner Theater invites Branson to see a Murder on the Square...well, not a real murder, mind you, this is gonna be more fun that you’ve had in forever, and you’ll get a scrumptious dinner at the same time...can’t beat that with a stick, right?  This isn’t your typical theater production; the audience sits amidst the action, and even gets recruited to participate.  More than 15 of the characters in the show come right out of the audience!  And those crazy enough to volunteer will get their very own six-shooter and cowboy hat; the hat is real, the gun is not.

The Branson Murder Mystery Dinner Theater’s production of Murder on the Square is loosely based on a bit of true Branson history, with some hilarious liberties taken, of course, just to amp up the fun and put a light-hearted spin on the challenges of small town life in the “old west” midwest!  It begins with the maddening mystery of several residents kickin’ the bucket - or to put it bluntly, too many of ‘em are ending up dead as a doornail.  You can laugh yourself silly watching all the crazy antics in a “Branson in the old West” atmosphere, or you can put yourself out there and let everyone else laugh themselves silly while you try your hand at dinner theater -- for real!  And you never know, the nasty murderin’ madman just might turn out to be you!  Don’t forget, if you’d rather be a happy observer, there’s no pressure to begin your Branson acting career during this show!

Written by the hilarious star of the Comedy Hypnosis Show, Jecobie Roberts, Murder on the Square is more fun than you’ve ever had at the theater!  Whether you get up the nerve to jump in and help with the outrageous investigation, or sit on the sidelines and happily judge those who do, you’ll have a heck of a great time as the guns start shootin’, the trains start whistlin’, and folks start yellin’ their fool heads off - it’s a blast!  If you’re looking for a genuinely immersive, interactive entertainment experience, it doesn’t get any more real than this, and it’s all in good, clean fun when the Branson Murder Mystery Dinner Theater presents Murder on the Square!
Don't forget to return for a very merry "murder" for the Christmas season!

I read other reviews that were poor and dated over a year ago, but I would definitely give it a 5 star. So thumbs up for the improvements. The buffet was great. Fried chicken, 2 kinds of meatloaf, a nice salad bar and other sides to choose from, dessert and drinks included. The actors were great. It started out slow because the setting of a murder mystery dinner is different than a complete cast performance, but it evolved into a great show with great humor and entertainment. They did a great job with allowing volunteers from the audience to take on a role. The audience participants, who volunteered, obviously enjoyed acting and did a great job. So go with an open mind that it is a different environment than sitting down to a regular show.

"Murder Under the Mistletoe"

Rating of 4 stars  Reviewed December 19, 2017
We were there for the Christmas murder mystery. The food was good, especially the chicken. The pulled pork is usually my choice, but this was too dry and tasteless. We got to be Kay Marte and Walt Marte in the play. Two of our four friends were also chosen. One was Johnny Deep. Ken solved the murder, but someone else got the prize. If you are going to choose when multiple people get it right, you should let us know. We kind of wondered what happened?

"Mystery Murder"

Rating of 1 stars  Reviewed December 7, 2017
This was the most disappointing part of our trip. This show paled in comparison to other shows we saw. The food was very average and the show was not a polished performance. The rest of the shows were great and I would rate them a 4 or 5. Spend the money to attend “The Miracle of Christmas.”

"Branson Murder Mystery Dinner Show"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed September 24, 2017
Branson Murder Mystery Dinner Show was well done. The buffet meal was well presented, moved quickly, and tasted good. Two options were available of pork and chicken or you could have both. Sides were salad, potatoes, mac & cheese, rolls and green beans. 3 kinds of cobbler were available for desert and lemonade and tea to drink. If you went away hungry, it was your own fault. The actors and actresses did a good job at getting audience participation and kept us guessing who the murderer was until the very end. I have been to 2 other murder mystery dinner shows in the past and this one tops the others. Very nice evening.

My wife and I did not know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere. My wife was selected as an audience participant and received rave reviews from some of those in attendance. We highly recommend this show.

"Fun evening"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed June 10, 2017
We enjoyed the show and also the buffet style dinner. The performers were funny and very interactive. They drew the audience in, not only the ones with assigned parts, but included everyone.We would recommend the show to anyone interested in a fun, entertaining evening.

"Do. Not. Do. It."

Rating of 1 stars  Reviewed March 18, 2017
So, let's just start out by saying that I have seen my fair of shows that weren't the best, but I could at least sit through them. This one, not even close. My husband and I left after intermission...we somehow managed to stay for over an hour and a half. It was about 100 bucks for both of us to go...and it wasn't even close to worth it. Buffet food with a whopping 5 items on folding tables. There were foam plates and plastic silver. You could have water or tea to drink...very disappointing. The actors forgot their lines multiple times. It was supposed to start at 4 and they said multiple times that we couldn't start till 5 (for whatever reason) and then one actor said we would start, and then went back stage and we heard another (very rude) actor say "Well, we are NOT starting till 5, so!" (Her mic was supposed to be off.) So, the audience just sat there staring at each other for about 30 minutes. Then, once it began, we couldn't even follow the story. Overly cheesy, overly unorganized. And I tried to sit through it with an opened mind. There are tons of great shows in Branson, don't make the mistake we did, and miss out on a good show by seeing this awful thing for an awful amount of money!!!

"Terrible Show"

Rating of 1 stars  Reviewed December 30, 2016
I can't believe we paid $40 per person for something worse than a high school play. The awful temporary decor is equal only to the screeching by the main actress. Can't follow the plot, don't care enough to try. My son had chanted "murder mystery!" so we selected this over the Dixie Stampede - huge mistake.

"Don't waste your time or money"

Rating of 1 stars  Reviewed April 4, 2016
No trip to Branson would be complete without going to at least one or two shows. Wished we had picked another show. The address on our tickets was for their old address not the new address. We arrived at the old address to find the parking lot empty and the building being remodeled into something else. They are now in a convention room of the "White House". This was a sign of things to come. The room was set up with folding tables and chairs and a plastic table cloth. There was a buffet line in back also on folding tables. They had foam plates and cups instead of real plates and glasses.The food was fair at best. The show was very average community theater. I enjoy going to small community theater but when I end up paying the same price as going to a Dixie Stampede or Branson Belle I expect more. The only bright spot was the actor really were trying to make this a good show. We purchased our tickets from Vacations Made Easy. Which turned out to be not easy and they over charged our group. The ticket takers could not give a refund and said I need to contact Vacation Made Easy When I booked the tickets, I was told we would be placed in the center and paid more for better seating. We when arrived, there was not assigned seating and could not see half of the show. Vacations Made Easy called me several time before our trip to try to sell me more shows and timeshare tours. Thank goodness I resisted. With such selection is shows in Branson, try something else!
